Perhaps I should reward him for his honesty

This is the last week of school for my kids, and it's a short week, at that, because of Memorial Day. Everything is over by now...all the tests and such. Last night at 9:00 I called out "bed time!" and my son asked if they could stay up until 10:00. "No," I said, "not until school is out."

His plaintive reply was, "But I'm not even going to learn anything this week!"

Man, that cracked me up.


  1. State-mandated baby-sitting for a week.

  2. Yeah, this last week of school is useless. But the administration will say with a straight face that it's educationally necessary. I'd have a lot more respect if they'd just say "Well, we don't want to be here either, but the state mandates we have them in school X number of days, and besides we get a couple thousand dollars per student." But no, they've gotta BS us...
